Global Climate Change—is it a natural climatic progression, are humans heating up the planet through greenhouse gasses, or is it possible that someone is altering the climate for their own maniacal purposes?

MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA— Dr. Linda Ann Kipling, meteorologist with the Naval Research Laboratory, has had her share of excitement working with the enigmatic and arrogant Dr. Victor Mark Silverstein, NRL’s preeminent scientist. Twice in four years, she and her boss have faced international crises requiring heroic action. In 2005, when a rogue American genius teamed with terrorists to target Washington, DC, with a devastating hurricane, Silverstein was forced to confront him—the same man responsible for the death of his college sweetheart. In 2007, Silverstein and Kipling tangled with U.S. senators, the CIA, and a Middle Eastern organization for verification and control of a “prophecy gene,” a genetic mutation associated with clairvoyance.

It is now 2011, and Kipling finds herself facing an ethical dilemma involving her only remaining relatives, the Müller family. She discovers that her South American family is not only responsible for the murders of several colleagues in Greenland, but also for a fiendish plot to alter the world’s climate for their own maniacal purposes. The Müllers, once part of Hitler’s inner circle, escaped from Germany in 1945 with a fortune in gold.

With Silverstein providing backup, Kipling goes undercover in Greenland to stop her family’s lunacy. In a dramatic final showdown of wits between herself and the Müllers’ hired gun, Kipling fights to save the planet from a climatic apocalypse.
